DENVER — A country music superstar has announced his return to live touring.
Eric Church revealed Wednesday "The Gather Again Tour" will kick off this autumn and visit 55 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The tour will stop at Ball Arena in Denver on Friday, Oct. 15.
Tickets for the Colorado tour date go on sale Friday, May 7 at 10 a.m. at EricChurch.com.
For the first time in his career, Church said he will adopt an in-the-round set up, with the stage at the center of each arena floor in order to accommodate as many fans as possible.

The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year and current ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee, Eric Church said he wants to make the most of the long-awaited opportunity to “gather again."
“It became very clear to me that the only way to really get back to normal is through vaccinations. You’ve got to get needles in arms,” Church told Billboard.
“I just want to play shows,” said Church. “Politics’ job is to divide – that’s how you win elections. Those things that unite us are music and sports. The times when, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican or whatever, you throw your arm around the person next to you. We need that. I need that.”
Church will appear in an upcoming PSA promoting vaccine education, set to premiere during the Academy Of Country Music Awards broadcast on Sunday, April 18, where Church will also perform a song off his forthcoming "Heart & Soul" triple album project.
Church is a seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner and 10-time Grammy Award nominee.
